3/28/12-Something Historical–Opening Day PacBell Park-April 11,2000-Photography by Jon SooHoo/Los Angeles Dodgers

With a trip to Scottsdale to play the Giants on the schedule today, even with all of the bustling that is going on at Camelback, Los Angeles and New York in preparation for Magic’s group to be introduced, I thought this photo of another period in Dodger history would be cool to present.

In this photo are Bob Daly, Davey Johnson and Bob Graziano from the first ball game at PacBell Park on April 11, 2000.  © Jon SooHoo/Los Angeles Dodgers

This is one of my favorite images from this historical opening game of the ballpark and it was taken after the game. Kevin Elster reflects on hitting not only the first home run in PacBell Park history but the first three home runs in PacBell Park History.  Taken with my Leica M6 and 35/f2 on Fujichrome 100D. © Jon SooHoo/Los Angeles Dodgers


1/25/12-Something Historical—Ted Williams speaks to the Dodgers-March 2000

A special visit to Dodgertown by Ted Williams brought everyone in camp to the home clubhouse.  Shawn Green (L to R),  Tom Lasorda Ross Porter, Bob Daly, Bruce Froemming, Craig Callan and Davey Johnson. He spoke to the ball club about hitting and his life experiences then boarded a private plane from Vero Beach Airport back to Ocala.  At the airport assuming I was going to be taking photos from the ground of the them departing, Tommy screamed for me to get on board. So I joined Tommy,  Public Relations Assistant Ruth Ruiz on this private plane to drop off Mr Williams. Thanks Tommy….Truly a real cool experience.    © Jon SooHoo/Los Angeles Dodgers
